Eye Specialty Group continues to be on the cutting edge of products and services we offer to our valued patients. This is true in our Clinical Research Department, too.
ESG doctors and an experienced research team work hand in hand with some of the world’s largest and most advanced pharmaceutical developers and manufacturers on a daily basis.
Our research patients benefit greatly by participating in our clinical trials in the following ways:
Insurance: We don’t bill the insurance companies; therefore, there are no co-pays for the patient visits. Patient visits for clinical trials at ESG are free of charge.
Medications: All study-related medications are provided free of charge.
Patient Care: All of our patients receive top-notch care at ESG. With patients involved in clinical trials at ESG, this care also includes even more testing and attention from our doctors and research team.
Compensation: Patients who are involved in the clinical trials with ESG are typically compensated by the sponsors for their time and effort in the study.
Wait Times: Patients who are involved in the clinical trials typically do not wait to be seen. The research team takes great pride in the how quickly they can begin their patients’ appointment with ESG.
